The Law of Attraction Factor:
In October of 2016, I made a decision that would begin to transform my world.
I decided I needed to make a commitment to think positive and happy thoughts every day. I created a secret board on Pinterest (I love Pinterest) of happy, motivational messages and quotes. I started to collect quite a few and read them in the morning while drying my hair, and also in the evening before going to bed. Not long after beginning this, I started to pick one quote each morning to text to the group text between my mom and 2 sisters. Not long after I added my aunt (who is the most positive person I have ever known). The others would join in as well, send a message to us. It is the best way to start the day.
While searching for these positive quotes every day, I soon realized what I was doing was called the Law of Attraction. I was working on changing my thought patterns and habits to be happier, positive and grateful.
*Note about this before we go further – I had always considered myself to be a positive person, I try to look at the bright side of situations, but what brought on this desire to adjust my thoughts on a consistent basis is the truth that I could get damn cranky. I could be cranky or grouchy at our kids, or if something didn’t go just as I imagined, if the house was a big mess… Now, looking back, I wasn’t nearly as positive as I thought I was. It was just like life and tiredness taking over my thoughts. *
Back to what I was saying, as I realized I was practicing Law of Attraction, I would search quotes on this and came across ‘the Secret’ which is a book on the subject. By now, this is January of 2017, I bought the book and read it.
This book was just what I was looking for without knowing I was looking for something.
I have to say, it has made such a difference. I am aware of my thoughts now, so I nip the negativity before it can fester. I realized I don’t need to be cranky for stupid, ridiculous reasons. I am at peace with the things I can’t control and the things I shouldn’t be worried about controlling – house not as clean as I would like, for example.
My quality of life has improved so much since beginning this new way to ‘be’. I am a work in progress, and I take comfort knowing I have new skills to enjoy the moments.
